The homes of the Mid-Atlantic's waterfront communities epitomize coastal style. Whether on the beach in Ocean City or a creek on the Eastern Shore, the look is casual and calming, creating a style that makes its owners feel like every day is a vacation. Gina Fitzsimmons, owner of Fitzsimmons Design Associates and the Annapolis-based home furnishings store Details of Design, specializes in coastal homes. She calls this look "Chesapeake Cozy. " "I find that people in this region gravitate to a more comfortable, functional, tailored interior with a more eclectic look and natural materials," she says.

After a morning of snorkeling at the Marinarium nature preserve in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in July, a storm was fast approaching. The darkness of the looming skies and the reflection of the sun off the water really made the turquoise water pop. It was a beautiful scene, and this picture captures it perfectly.

The peasant look is everywhere, and Banana Republic has some of the hippest looks we've seen this spring.

Available at local stores or check out www.Bananarepublic.com. No lines, no worries Regular underwear leaves panty lines while thongs can be uncomfortable. What can save women from all this? Power Panties.

Beauty before me,With it I wander.Beauty behind me,With it I wander.Beauty below me,With it I wander.Beauty above me,With it I wander.Beauty all around me,With it I wander.In old age traveling,With it I wander.On the beautiful trail I am,With it I wander.-- from Navajo Night SongWhen jewelry is more than a mere fashion statement, when its beauty incorporates both tradition and innovation, when it becomes symbolic of a people, a way of life, a whole region, then it may be said to be an art. The making of turquoise jewelry in the Southwest by native American craftsmen and -women is such an art. Transcending simple utility, it is often useful.

When it came to fashion last spring, everything that was sweet and dainty was feminine. Minimalism was sexy. This spring, forget all that. Bigger is better and more is more, particularly when it comes to the season's hottest accessory -- the necklace. "We're moving away from the brooches that were so big last year and we're seeing a movement toward necklaces and the bracelet," said Glenn McMahon, president of Ellen Tracy. "The longer necklaces seem to be really important." Accessories in general are hot this season.

What are the season's hottest colors, and how do you properly incorporate them into your home? My season's hottest colors are a deep turquoise peacock and gray. I love turquoise peacock. Right now, I'm working on a master bedroom of a young couple who are world travelers who have been everywhere, including Morocco. In their bedroom, they have a lot of oversized wood furniture. I'm doing a finish on the wall that is an Americanized plaster version of tadelakt — a Moroccan plaster technique.

On a spring day outside Clyde's of Columbia, Jayne Love looks ready for summer as she waits to meet a friend for lunch. It's hard to believe this fashionable Pikesville psychologist is a grandmother of 10. "My style is kind of eclectic, slightly sophisticated and a little offbeat. I'm not afraid to be different. I like [to look] stylish, but not silly. Because I'm 65." Not that Love is going to let her chronological age get in the way of having fun with fashion. But, she knows her limits.

Here's something you don't see everyday: a woman who is not afraid to combine her black-and-cream sundress with accessories in a color that doesn't match anything -- but themselves. Too many of us would have taken this dress and worn it with black shoes and neutral jewelry. True, if the shoes were gorgeous, no style-seeker would have complained. But pairing cream and black with a cool blue, as Holly Barzyk did at Pazo restaurant, makes people notice. Such color courage is the mark of a true fashionista.

BORA-BORA, FRENCH POLYNESIA // A dream landscape emerged as our dinghy sped through turquoise waters toward the uninhabited South Seas islet of Tapu. Here, on a triangular speck of sand and coconut palms at the bottom of the world, red hibiscus, white gardenia and yellow plumeria blossoms were strewn on the water at land's edge. As we stepped from the boat, a sommelier offered flutes bubbling with Dom Perignon. Behind him, china and crystal sparkled on a dining table positioned in shallow water at the edge of the lagoon.

ALBUQUERQUE / / At the American International Rattlesnake Museum in Old Town Albuquerque, I spotted a sign on the door. "We love tourists," it said. "They taste just like chicken." In the past, this city was about as welcoming as that sign. Shops in Old Town had to be persuaded to stay open evenings, and until recently, zoning laws prohibited Old Town visitors from sitting on a restaurant patio and enjoying a glass of wine or a margarita. So tourists would fly into Sunport, Albuquerque's airport, and slither their way up Interstate 25 to Santa Fe, its sexier, better-dressed sister city.

Years ago, a district salesman for the Kenner Products toy company came up with the idea of a working toy oven for kids. Company executives greenlighted the project on one condition - it had to be perfectly safe. And so in 1963 they introduced the light-bulb-powered Easy-Bake Oven and created an American pop culture standard. Yesterday, nearly 1 million Easy-Bake Ovens were voluntarily recalled by Easy-Bake (now a subsidiary of Hasbro Inc.) because children can catch their fingers in the oven's opening and get burned.
